Chicago Calligraphy Workshop - Saturday 4/27/2019

Join me! I’m back for a beginning pointed pen course in Hyde Park!

This workshop will arm you with the tools you need to begin tackling the basic techniques of modern calligraphy using the pointed pen. How to hold the pen, practicing brushstrokes and finally constructing letters of a full alphabet will be covered. Highly recommended for those of you who are just starting out... Don't worry if you've never picked up a pen either, I make sure EVERYONE is comfy!

Mirror Lettering Class - Review

Ahhh, continuing the year of firsts! I taught my FIRST mirror lettering class and it was outstanding! The class was based off of my e-book of a similar title! There is nothing like actually auditing a class in person, however if you are interested in getting a head start, grab this resource to start learning the basics!

The students that took this class were pretty much already confident letterers so it was truly all about tips, tricks and techniques!

Will teach this one again, definitely!!!
